(My favorite necklace by Jen)

I've been having a restless...shifting in my bones kind of feeling. I want to tell this girl in the mirror what to do next...I'm just not sure what to say to her yet. You would seriously think that after almost 41 years, I would know, right? Well, okay...perhaps not.

The other day I casually tossed the idea of a career change at my husband. I told him that I thought it would be something that I could be really good at. It's something I could meld my yoga teaching with. Jon just smiled, and agreed that it would be perfect for me,and that was it. I've just been sitting and mulling it over. It is one that would mean going to university...and I imagine a pretty heavy duty work load. It would mean major changes for our family if I went for it...especially since we have a son who will be graduating high school in the spring, and who also will need help with whatever he chooses to pursue.

I grew up in a family where one person's pursuit of their creative dream really caused hardship for everyone else, so I am especially sensitive to how my choices impact the ones I love.

I am nothing,if not true to my ways. I'm pondering the logistics of it... because I know there is a way. This is what I did for a long time before I went to school the last time, but in the end I just leap and went for it. So,in my heart of hearts...I know where this is leading...right, dear Universe?

(My latest painting...but I'm stuck on the name. Any ideas? :-)



And I guess I don't worry to much...it's hard to when you feel so damn grateful for every moment of every day...I treasure days that are filled with love and light...colour...music...movement...laughter...and the steadfast belief that things will just be as they are meant to be.

What is causing you to stir and dream today? I'd love to hear...

Peace & Love...

lovely painting.

that restless feeling is such a familiar feeling with me...mine are usually to do with travel, wanting to get away in our camper and explore the sacred sites of my land.

You just hitch yourself to that star up there in the sky that has your name on it, and see what happens.

That painting is so breathtaking! My only idea for a title is "Sea of Dreams"...
